The web is abuzz with questions about the new 420 cc Craftsman motor!  Ok, the buzz isn’t quite as strong as the latest iPhone 5 rumors, Dancing With The Stars or even Anne Hathaway but for those of you looking for an inexpensive lawn tractor or riding mower the questions you have are more than relevant.

I’ll keep this article short. Feel free to ask questions in the comments.

Here is what I know:

The engine was introduced last year in the Craftsman Model 25000 riding lawn mower and the owners really like the power it has. They also brag about the fuel economy.

It is designed from the ground up to handle today’s unleaded and 10% ethanol blended fuels.

It has a full pressure lube oil system with oil filter. This means it will run on inclines without running out of oil.  It is better than all the other motors currently on the $1400 and less lawn tractors.

It is not made by Briggs & Stratton or Kawasaki. It is made by MTD. MTD has been making engines for quite some time now and they are proving to be reliable and trustworthy engines.

It is designed to replace competitor’s engines up to 500 cc.
